Overview
When tightening down your axle nut, it's easy to inadvertently compress the interior bearing spacer. This puts stress on your bearings and introduces slop into your setup, which detracts from the precision a bearing spacer is intended to provide.

The Atlas Blackout longboard bearings have a built-in, flared spacer that increases the surface area of the load bearing foot between the two bearings. This prevents compression of the spacer, which means a more precise ride, faster roll speed and longer life.

Type

ABEC 9 - The ABEC scale is essentially a measurement of bearing tolerance for high precision bearings as dictated by the Annular Bearing Engineering Committee (ABEC). The scale runs from ABEC 1 through ABEC 9 using odd integers only. Essentially, the higher up on the scale a bearing is rated the tighter the tolerance is.

Tighter bearing tolerance means that the bearing moves with less resistance at high speeds, giving you a bit more roll for your push. In general most ABEC 3 or ABEC 5 bearings have steel races (shell of the bearing) with hardened steel ball bearings, and most ABEC 7 or ABEC 9 bearings feature steel races with super hard (much harder than steel) ceramic or titanium bearings.

Built-in Spacers - Built-in spacers allow you to tighten the axle all the way to ensure the bearings stay parallel in the wheel.

Seems like a solid bearing but...

Atlas Blackout Longboard Bearings
They're kind of noisy. I tried two different skate oils but still no dice. Perhaps they just need a few more miles on them, not sure. I have them in some 65mm Devines and the fit was nice and tight, I just wish they were quieter.

At first I tried them in WRECK Wheels and they froze up as I cranked them down, so I was going to give up because the last set of built-in bearings I tried had the same problem in a different set of wheels. I thought maybe built-ins just weren't for me or something...but then I read someone had great results in Kryptos so I tried that and WHOA super fast and a great ride! Rad!

These are excellent. Have it paired with 60mm green Kryptonics. The combo is surprisingly fast at the skatepark. Great deal.

Asked by Joe Moss on 4/21/2016
Spaced for longboard wheels, but will they fit in standard skateboard wheels?
Answered by Bryan L (Tactics Employee) on 4/21/2016
These bearings will not work for standard skateboard wheels. It will only fit in longboard wheels.
